Main characters:

  • Phoron Tatara – total dork, but popular with all of the girls.. so one of those anime types who actually not exist;
  • Corticarte Apa Lagranges – the red haired flying girl, who is a spirit of Phoron;
  • Renbart Saiki – a friend of Phoron;
  • Perserte Yugiri – sister no.1;
  • Prinesca Yugiri – sister no.2;

As you can see this anime has a big bunch of games in it’s list, and so it is representing the story of them. Story line is kinda simple, but i guess original in its own way (at least I think that games were original on their own time). ah one more thing before story telling – this anime, though was released later than the original Shinkyoku Sōkai Polyphonica (2007) is actually prequel. It tells the story how Phoron met Corti, while the first anime already tells about their adventures. Its like Batman movies, first they release his adventures and then Batman Begin..

rule of anime – the most innocent looking – the strongest and the most evil

So now the story – a lonely and unsociable kid named Phoron has an extreme ability – when he sings it sounds like Comandia. So one night he meets a spirit, who hears his song and is amazed by it. But as she was in a middle of the battle she couldn’t finish making a contract with him (or whatever she was trying to do there). After a lot of years a kid studies to be Dantist (that is not dentist.. don’t be mislead) – a special kind of musician, who can control spirits through their music. And he is lousy at it (told you that he was a dork).. but one day he sings his song and a spirit comes to him. He doesn’t know at first (as her appearance is different.. and cup size so downsized) that its the same spirit he met as a kid. But eventually they figure things out and start living together, going to school together and so on.. also there comes some bad guys, who want to destroy the world and stuff.. well you know nothing unusual.

^first meeting                                                           ^Second meeting

What i missed in this anime, was actually a depth of it.. Though it tells kinda interesting story, even some drama (like twins episode, which they somehow made more into harassment episode, rather than explaining the complication of relationship.. such a shame), maybe even too much love (whats wrong with anime – all dorks get all the girls.. well ok he is cute, but he is more like a girl himself, but Renbart is so much better..).


^Renbart                                             and geographical test: ^that is actual place. Where is it?
So in other words it had potential, but it missed it by far in my opinion (and even drawing was only halfway..). I didn’t see the original first season, so I can’t tell, but i hope it is better than this one.

I don’t know if i need to go any further in this. But i guess that first season and games are actually better than this anime.. though i still enjoyed some moments of it so I can’t say its unworthy of seeing. Actually i enjoyed the music (as I’m a fan of classical music..), though the drawing had a lot of holes in it.. and worst was that it looked like they wanted to cover it up using some fanservice.. for example (be aware to be older than 18) the second picture is drawn just bad..:

^btw that one’s of the sisters.. with clothes she looks less exciting:

somehow they did that trick with Corti as well – she grows in all sizes:

So in the end my opinion:
